From 9/11 to Terror War is a book that demonstrates that you should not always believe everything you see in print. Although it purports to show the link of  changes in government policy in reaction to the terror attacks of 9/11, it becomes immediately obvious that this is a "get Bush" book.

Get more information about this book at amazon.comThis author tries to present a case that the policies of the Bush administration  were directly to blame for the 9/11 attacks. It is obvious that the author isn't aware that this same group was responsible for the embassy bombing in Kenya  during the Clinton administration and that its attack was met with the weakest  possible response. I expected to read a well thought out, deeply researched non-partisan look at these events, but instead was greeted with page upon page criticizing George Bush's demeanor and personal mannerisms. Instead of a discussion  of these high-impact historical moments, the reader is greeted with a recap of the author's hatred for this president and his administration.

I highly recommend not bothering with this politically motivated recap of events relating to the terror attacks and their aftermath unless you are an avid Bush hater, in which case you will find the book useful and enlightening. As far as learning the history of this era, I recommend looking elsewhere.
